Today on Flickr I read a comment from one of my contacts (on his site) about flickr allowing rvision.daydreamlabs access to our flickr photography. Thus, he thought folks were stealing his work and doing their own processing on his work. He was so upset about it that he has decided not to update his pro account this year. When I read it , I was upset , too, and took about 100 of my photos off my flickr account.
Then, I started thinking.. I really do not know what we are dealing with. So, I went to the site in question and tried to download one of my photos. I was able to, but the resolution was so low that I doubt that anyone could do much with my photo should they try to steal it….Maybe, it isn’t such a bad thing to be linked to rvision.daydreamlabs….I don’t know….Do you have any thoughts on this?
I also wonder about the Getty Art Work connection on flickr….Should they want one of your photos, do you give up all your rights? I have heard pros and cons about that company as well…
Anyway, that is what I’m thinking about today….I added this photo hoping we do not have alligators lurking about our photography on flickr… (Should you want to check out this “rvision.daydreamlabs.com/”…go to the site and put in your flickr name…and your photos will appear…)
